ECHO – Education for Environmental Sustainability: Creative Learning Centers and Digital Tools

Strategic Partnership for Adult Education


About the Project

ECHO, acronym for “Education for Environmental Sustainability: Creative Learning Centers and Digital Tools”, is an Erasmus+ Key Action 2 Adult Education project modelled on the specific needs of the European adult learning community in the field of Sustainable Development, Sustainability and Environmental Protection. The topic of ECHO is therefore composed of several important keywords such as: environment, sustainability, and promotion of ecological perspectives and attitudes, that is, European and global challenges that require complex thinking and layered design approaches. ECHO is implemented by an international partnership that involves organizations with extensive experience, coming together to devise a strategic path capable of rethinking educational spaces, concretely creating new ones, oriented towards the future.

Adult education is combined with the primary languages ​​of creativity, cultural heritage and digital innovation. The starting point of ECHO is the recognition of the gaps in the various European education and training systems in the field of Sustainability and Environmental Protection, as well as in the field of Sustainable Development. The project, therefore, wishes to promote the growth of systemic awareness and the value of Environmental Sustainability as an educational path, leveraging the relationship between anthropic and ecosystem and thus outlining, in a simple and attractive way, new habits and behaviours that are both concrete and rooted in the individual, moreover being supported by adequate critical thinking and models of active and responsible citizenship.

ECHO will produce the following Project results:

– PR1 Comparative Research on Environmental Education:
– PR2 Digital Platform – Education for Environmental Sustainability in Europe
– PR3 Exhibition “Echo”
– PR4 Educator’s Toolkit: Volunteering for Environmental Sustainability and a new culture of Consumption and Waste
– PR5 Entrepreneurial Curriculum: the possibilities of Environmental Sustainability, role models, best practices, green jobs
